I have an alternate version here: http://colecovizion.deviantart.com/gallery/28882086#/d3b46ew

The alternate changes the crop and reduces the vignette.

I love that this image makes your eye search the waves. My eye was quickly pulled to the left where I noticed the bird standing on one of the rocks. One detail that I love here is that there is another bird far in the distance and you can see it clearly.
Good, sharp photo.

I'm not much of a fan of vignetting. But over all it's a beautiful photo. I do think it's a little too busy for a wallpaper, but otherwise it's wonderful.

I love the coloring, and I'm a huge fan of the little bird on the left.

Great composition. This one has a refreshingly earthy color scheme. I love the sunny haze floating over all the rocks and seaweed. The birds are perfect, too. Something about the angle of this picture makes me feel like I'm benignly sneaking up on them. :-)

I guess this isn't the sharpest photo on IFL, but I think that kind of adds to the dreamy vibe of the shot, to be honest. This will probably live on my desktop for a good long while. Nice stuff.

An excellent photo, and it's now my wallpaper. It reminds me of the wallpaper called Follow in Windows XP.

Perhaps the crop could be a little better, and it would be nice to see a photo with more fish.

I like it since it feels like a really old photograph. Composition is very good. I didn't even notice the vignetting until you mentioned it and even then it's very delicate. Done right in other words!

The foreground is maybe a bit too dark and/or imposing and loses some detail, but I'm sitting at a TN panel writing this so I can't say for sure anyways.

Love the color, although it is slightly warm for my liking, but that is strictly personal preference. I must say though, it fits perfectly with the scene. Great photo.
